Wadi Rum was the last stop on a very long day trip. By the time we arrived from Petra we were exhausted, but despite the exhaustion, Wadi Rum was probably our most memorable stop. We took a jeep ride through the desert to various points including a massive red sand dune, a lovely oasis where we rested and sampled some... More

Don't miss a trip into this expansive, beautiful desert. Meet some bedouins and experience desert life. Take in the beauty, see some camels and climb the rocks. This place will enter your heart and never leave.

Wadi Rum is just amazing .. mountains are huge and rosy..here you can see the best sunset or sunrise. During night all starts are visible even the milky way galaxy. You can enjoy a bonfire on one of the camps spread around while doing star gazing. It is very cold at night and very hot during day time so you... More

This is one of the major attractions in Jordan. If you can't go to the Jawf region in Saudi Arabia the. You can come here. It is where they filmed Lawrence of Arabia. The natural beauty is amazing and there are inscriptions, rock art, and some cairns. The place is vast and you cannot just wander in on your own.... More

I think this was the highlight of our trip for my wife. We arrived here en route to Aqaba from Amman. You leave the comfort of you Drivers air conditioned Toyota and into a 4x4 pickup. You're then driven through a small Bedouin village and into the desert. And then he lets the throttle rip! Wind in your hair, sand... More

Jordan is very underrated and has so many beautiful places to see. But Wadi Rum is a treasure! Just an hour+ drive north of Aqaba you step into another world. The rock formations are incredible and the vistas unique to this location. Have a local Bedouin guide drive you through the many kilometers of dirt roads that lead to unexpected... More
